Integrated carcass, meat primals and associated products identification, tracking, tracing and record generation system

Objective

Recent animal and food contamination issues have highlighted the immediate need for better materials tracking and tracing. A relatively simple, flexible, low cost approach has been identified for carcasses from pig, lamb and poultry capable of integrating animal ID data with grading and production data. Any technology developed must be simple to use and cost effective but be available in formats to suit small producers and large processors alike. It must also be relatively unobtrusive and satisfy current food regulations The end point is a demonstration of an integrated, non-contact system for marking and identifying animal carcasses, their primal and subsequent products with a robust 2D Matrix code that remains with the meat during break-up and processing, using a combination of separate technologies already proven in other industries.
